The Six Feet Office concept was implemented in the design of Cushman & Wakefield’s newly consolidated Warsaw office to ensure employees of the global commercial real estate services firm can return to work safely. Massive Design has achieved the office design for Cushman & Wakefield located in Warsaw, Poland.
Cushman & Wakefield has consolidated its Warsaw offices in The Warsaw Hub. Now its employees gained access to all the amenities and creative workspaces on nearly 2,500 sq m of office space spread over two floors of the building.
Massive Design, which assisted Cushman & Wakefield during each stage of the development of one of the most awaited projects this year in Warsaw, was responsible for the preparation of the functional concept and architectural design of the new office.
The space of the new office has been created for people and their modern workstyle and to foster creative collisions and collaboration. And it’s not only about centrally located, superb common zones with a beautiful view of the centre of Warsaw, but also smaller enclaves or rooms that can serve both introverts and extroverts.
A crucial part of the process was the first stage of preparations – employee and manager workshops and gathering information on all business processes and needs of teams and individuals. The workplace strategy team led by Aleksander Szybilski organised many meetings with employees to identify key design expectations and workplace needs, for example requirements for height adjustable desks. Detailed space utilisation studies conducted in previous locations provided concrete information on the actual utilisation of desks that ranged between 59% and 79%.
The project also involved the participation of the firm’s Project & Development Services team with Mariola Bitner, which was responsible for project and cost management, including a tender to select a design studio, as well as Administration, HR, Marketing and Communication, and IT.
The new head office of Cushman & Wakefield is one of the firm’s most modern offices in EMEA. It was designed and built to meet the requirements of WELL certification, with attention to every detail and top-quality materials and fit-out. It provides a Power Room, a Relax Room with a massage recliner chair, a Yoga Room, and a parent and child room. Employees will also be able to enjoy a spacious bistro-like canteen. Modern workstations for individual work, spaces for project work with sitstand desks, soundproof phone booths and more than 30 meeting rooms all make for great office comfort. Most of those rooms are located next to the building core what brings all the panoramic views of the Warsaw to the people working by the typical work desks.
Cushman & Wakefield’s new office boasts a unique design based on geometry and selection of high quality materials. The meeting rooms in the employee-only section feature fit-out elements reflecting their nature-related names such as Spring, Summer, Volcano, Hurricane, and Forest. The design of the rooms in the client-dedicated section was inspired by Warsaw’s iconic landmarks selected by the employees during the project preparation.
The new Warsaw office of Cushman & Wakefield has been designed in line with the Six Feet Office concept. Automated room booking systems, motion detectors and room occupancy indicators facilitate finding vacant space and help ensure employee safety.
